Hi! My name is Colt! I am a 7-year-old boy living at my foster home near Dallas, TX. I needed to have my health reviewed and analyzed, and now I’m ready to find my forever family. I love to play ball, fetch and take walks. I love to be petted, but don’t cuddle up too close on me, it makes me nervous. I don’t do well with small/young children due to my experiences in my original home (they kind of tormented me).
As you can see, I am darn cute! And my foster parents have taken care of all my health issues and even cleaned my teeth! I feel so much better now! I still need some help with putting my harness on or I get grouchy, and I am a tad snappy if you suddenly wake me up or swing your foot at me while I’m asleep, so I do need some warning there! I love to play and be loved on, but “roughhousing” can get me overstimulated, and, I might get snippy. It’s only on occasion, and my foster parents know how to handle me well. I’ve made a lot of progress. But, I heard my foster mom say “He is soooo sweet, but he needs a family that will work with his quirks. And, keep working with him.” Could someone tell me what a quirk is and do all Welsh Terriers have them?
